Expanding Language of Young Children

Using Modeling to Expand Language-Model the process: children receive natural instruction when the teacher goes through their thought process-Provide examples: real-life situations help students make connections to things they have experienced up to this point-Restate or lengthen what the child says: Turn "red ball" into "Yes, I see the large, red ball bouncing on the street."-In general, use sentences with descriptive words and appropriate length and grammar

-Teach students to monitor their comprehension: students are aware of what they do and do not understand and can develop ways to resolve this-Use metacognition: students define their reason for reading, monitor their understanding during reading, and will check their understanding after reading-Answer questions: help students to think actively about the text and allows them to focus in on what they are to learn-Recognize story structure: students build their ability to identify things such as setting, characters, etc.-Students learn to summarize the information: they identify and connect the main ideas, eliminate unneeded information. and remember what they read

Gaining Meaning From Unfamiliar Words-Utilize independent reading: require students to read a certain number of books of their choice-students benefit from having their own book box-Encourage students to use semantic maps: these are graphic organizers that help students relate words they know with an unfamiliar word-Have students keep vocabulary logs: this allows the student to write down new words in the context they learn it in and they can write or define the word. The teacher will collect them and provide experiences for the students to use these words on a regular basis, if appropriate-Preteach unfamiliar vocabulary: students have a greater chance of learning a new word when it is presented to them just before they encounter it in text, allowing for greater meaningful experiences
